“Scalpers and ads encouraged over community”

Written on: 03/02/2021 by Reddeviluk (1 review written)

I have been a user of these forums for over a decade and have bought and sold literally thousands of pounds worth of items hight and sold 410 positive feedback, 0 negative. In fact I was a moderator there briefly many years ago.

I've just had a run in with a moderator "Apsilon" who approached me as is posted a comment about sometime with 0 feedback selling a Playstation 5 for hundreds of pounds over the RRP, this has started to happen on a daily basis recently. My "Disparaging remarks" (by simply stating it wasn't a fair price) has just been rewarded by me receiving a trading ban.

Sadly, I'm afraid to say, standards have slipped, what was once a friendly place for like-minded people to help each other out, trade fairly and look after each other has now become more cut throat than eBay, sadly, just less honest about it.

As you'll see from other reviews here, the moderators moderate in the same way that an SS Solder does, to quote "Apsilon" "So deal with it, bite your tongue and move on" followed by "if you don't like it, move on, because as I said, if you continue, you will be banned"

So loyal users are put to one side in preference to one hit wonder scalpers, but as "Apsilon" says "I’m simply following the directive set out by the owner and a moral compass doesn’t come into it."

Disappointing response, disappointing forums run by disappointing people.
